That's a which is better for whatever company you should decide should be able to track all of your movements and have the ability to use any and all of that data from doing so to monetized access to your movements.

Sounds like a winner to me!

Almost all these kinds of devices use bluetooth so the range is very limited unless a LOT of people suddenly start using the Tile app.

Pestifer: What if you're like my wife and misplace your phone all the time with the ringer turned off?

I have a Tile on my keys and in my wallet. They have been absolute godsends. My old search method, which is "think about where you've been and look there, because they can't be anywhere else" always worked, but it frequently took time that I didn't really have. Tile takes me right to it.

The smartest and cheapest thing to do is to simply have a nail or a bowl and put your stuff there the moment you get home or work, but as frequently as I've tried to get into that habit it's never worked for me so things get "lost". I'm happy with Tile.
